Arjun Tendulkar has delivered exceptional performances in multiple tournaments, which bagged him the opportunity to slide in the 14th edition of the Indian Premier League. He was picked by Mumbai Indians in the IPL 2021 auctions for his base price of Rs 20 lakhs. Since Mumbai Indians already have the pace bowling attack in the form of Jasprit Bumrah and Trent Boult, it is expected that Arjun Tendulkar might make his way in the playing XI in IPL 2021 and join hands with experienced players to carry forward the dominance of Mumbai Indian in IPL fixtures.
Jhye Richardson is one of the experienced bowlers of Australia. Just before the IPL 2021 auctions, he gained the limelight of investors and selectors by becoming the highest wicket-taker of BBL tournament with 29 wickets. The exceptional performance by the pace bowler earned him a ticket to IPL 2021. He was picked by Punjab Kings for whopping 14 crores. Since Punjab Kings have invested in multiple bowlers in the past and failed to deliver results, Jhye Richardson will be one of the prime players who can debut in the 2021 edition of the Indian Premier League.
Dawid Malan received one bid from Punjab Kings in the IPL 2021 auctions. He was acquired for Rs 1.5 crore because of his consistent performances in T20 league matches. IPL 2021 will be crucial for Dawid Malan as he is currently the top batsmen in T20 format. He might step on the field for Punjab Kings and kickstart his IPL career. Malan has already been part of various T20 tournaments like BBL, PSL and many other tournaments.
Jalaj Saxena is one of the talented players who has been a part of the Indian Premier League for 8 years. He has been training and learning under various IPL franchises such as Mumbai Indians, Delhi Capitals, and Royal Challengers Bangalore. However, he has not played any single IPL match in his career. The reason he was picked by Punjab Kings in the IPL 2021 auctions was his dedication and commitment to the game. Even though Jalaj has not played IPL contest, he has marked his presence in the Champions League. Jalaj might make his IPL debut with Punjab Kings in the 14th edition of the Indian Premier League.
